Hi everyone, v9.1.0 is released, with the promised features of allowing you to save list settings to multiple lists at once. Download/Install: http://dadamailproject.com/d/install_dada_mail.pod.html Changelog: http://dadamailproject.com/d/changes_9_x.pod.html#pod9.1.0 Features Save to Multiple Lists at Once Previously: One frustration of working with a large collection of different mailing lists with Dada Mail is that each mailing list must be administrated one at a time, so it was not possible to make chan ...Continue Reading

PERL Upgrade Errors I use MacPorts to keep things up to date on the server that Dada Mail runs on (a Macintosh running 10.10). I have mail.cgi pointing to the /opt/local/When I did an update the other day, I received a couple of messages from list subscribers who were having problems opening email messages. I checked the error log and it had a number of lines like these:\C is deprecated in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/(\C <-- HERE )/ at /Library/WebServer/Documents/vtnews/DADA/perllib/URI/Escape.pm line 205, & ...Continue Reading

Any plans to release a list of possible future feature additions based on the survey? I can put together something, I guess. To help people along with what Dada Mail currently can do, I have put together two screencasts that show how to apply your Wordpress theme to Dada Mail, as well as in ...Continue Reading

That’s awesome. Thanks, Justin! I’m curious to know if you plan to share the results of the survey you did - especially the Wordpress integration. Any plans to release a list of possible future feature additions based on the survey?

Howdy All - I've been working on an oft-requested feature: the ability to save the settings you see in the list control panel screens to multiple lists at once. Hurray! So in the very near future, (for example), you'll be able to change all the Sending Preferences for all your mailing lists (or choose exactly which ones you would like t save to)at the same time. Currently, you will need to log into every mailing list individually to make the changes, and save your settings. So, that'll soon be no more. Here's w ...Continue Reading

Moshe tested it for me and found that it is a browser bug in Firefox. It’s not downloading the protected file itself, but it downloads the code for the login page in a file with the name of the file being protected (I didn’t try to open the file so it never occurred to me that when the name was correct that it wasn’t actually the protected-file). It also explains why I was getting people who said they couldn’t open the file occasionally. Chrome and Edge work as expected. Moshe suggested serving the PDF files w ...Continue Reading

If there is a direct link on a non-protected page to a file download, then when I use right-click and “Save link as”, the login comes up. When I hit cancel, it lets me download the file anyway. I tested it for multiple files. Very strange! If you want to email me personally about this, I'll take a look (is this using the install I just did for you?) ...Continue Reading

I’m using password protect directories on one of my sites and have found a weird issue. The protection works with one exception. If there is a direct link on a non-protected page to a file download, then when I use right-click and “Save link as”, the login comes up. When I hit cancel, it lets me download the file anyway. I tested it for multiple files. Trying to access the file either by clicking the link or pasting the URL in the address bar prevents access, but the right click allows access after canceling the login ...Continue Reading

- This mailing list is a group discussion list (unmoderated)
Start a new thread, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This mailing list is to discuss the nerdy programming development of Dada Mail -
If you are just looking for support Dada Mail, consult the message boards at:
To post to this list, send a message to:
All subscribers of this list may post to the list itself.
Some on topic... topics include:
- Positive Crits on the program (I like, "x", but, "y" needs some work - here's an idea on how to make this better...)
- Bug/Error reports
- Bug fixes
- Request For Comments on any changes to the program
- Help customizing Dada Mail for your own internal needs
- Language Translations
- Support Documentation/Doc editing, FAQ's, etc.
- Discussion of any changes that you would like to be committed to the next version of Dada Mail -
At the moment, there aren't many people with CVS access for Dada Mail - if you would like CVS access, please first talk about the changes you propose and how it will affect the program. If the idea is sound and agreed upon, the change will be comitted. A good track record of this will allow you to have CVS access. Some reasons that patches will not be accepted is if the patch breaks compatibility with a previous version of the program, the patch is too centric to your own problem or the patch simply isn't very good.
Please, please please familiarize yourself with the documentation at:
Since no one wants to answer the same question twice.
Another sneaky reason for this mailing list is to test out the discussion list capabilities of Dada Mail, since Dada Mail is used for the mailing list itself.
NOTE - because of this, there may be times that this list will be somewhat broken. Although we're not planning on breaking the program by using it, we're giving you the heads up that this may well happen anyways.
